Markets

Stay current and up-to-date with every ebb and flow of the markets, with articles from the Dent Research team. Our editors cover all markets, foreign and domestic, and all things trading, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility and risk.

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Our editors lay out several benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy, on a regular basis.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.”

The Dent Research team also examines the rise (and falls) of the world’s currencies, which of course includes bitcoin and blockchain, as the cryptocurrency market has taken the world by storm in a relatively short period of time.

Gold was a great standard for monetary systems up until the industrial revolution, but today, it isn’t representative of the information-based economy and it’s too costly to be a medium of exchange. But so many still hold on to gold’s value for a number of reasons, which is why our editors follow gold’s every move.

Real estate is different than other consumer sectors of spending. It’s obviously not consumable like food or clothing. But it’s not like a durable product either, like cars and washing machines. Real estate, with the exception of natural disasters or human insanity (arson, wars, etc.), tends to last forever.

Lastly, the Dent Research team covers many of the leading foreign markets, where you can learn all about the global banking crisis, China and what’s going on in many other foreign markets.

Rent the House You Live in… Buy One Far Away to Rent Out…

I enjoyed two recent articles by Andrea Riquier at MarketWatch. The first was “The new housing play: helping priced-out renters become long-distance landlords.” It was a strategy aimed at people living in unaffordable areas – like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami,...

Middle Class, Beware

In San Francisco, a household now needs an income of $188,000 to afford rent for the average two-bedroom house or apartment with 30% of the household income spent on housing. The problem is that the median income is only $103,801. Housing...

The Greek Tragedy Is Far From Over

Last week, Greece received $17 billion from its creditors, representing the final installment of the country’s third bailout since 2010. This is the last one. Really. Stop laughing. There’s no doubt the Southern Mediterranean country has endured a lot of pain over...

The Suburbs Are Back

Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot on real estate. There are starting to be clear signs of extremes in pricing, and high rent burdens. Cities are starting to crack on the high end. It’s what I’ve forecasting – that this second bubble...

Treasury Yields Break on Through To The Other Side

The past week brought its fair share of drama. Although equity and Treasury markets exhibited signs of nervousness, volatility actually subsided. Trade wars between the U.S. and other countries continued to dominate the headlines. But these disputes haven’t moved markets all...
